Shelley's Story...

Hi every one.

I'm a 29 year old gal from Sydney.

I was diagnosed in January this year 03 and had surgery on the 27th February to remove an adrenocortical carcinoma. I had massive weight gain over a short period of time along with all the other known symptoms that go along with Cushing's at first they thought I had PCOS until further testing to show up extremely high levels of cortisol and testosterone and the rest.

I am currently on Mitotane (chemo) but is not working as the tumour has reappeared back in the liver and lymph so the next step is a more radical chemo.
